y husband, daughter, and I met my sister and her family there for dinner this evening.
My sister and I each had coupon voucher. When my sister saw the waitress, she told her that each one of our families had a voucher and asked is we would each be able to use them since we were on 2 separate tickets. She was told her it would be no problem. The meal was pretty good (although Central BBQ is still way better). The problem began when we went to check out. When we were standing in line waiting to checkout, "Fat Larry" was talking to guys standing behind us, I heard him rudely say, "I will get it for you when these people move out of the way" (referring to mine and my sister's families).
Our waitress took my sister's voucher and processed her remaining payment. When I stepped up to the register and handed her my voucher, she was about to process it when, very rudely, Fat Larry asked where we were sitting. I pointed to our table. Again rudely, he asked, "With them?" (referring to my sister). I told him yes. He blew up at me and said that he would not honor my voucher that he wasn't giving away $40 worth of food (which apparently he doesn't know how to do math because he would have only been offering $20 worth of food). This would be no different if each of our families had come in and sat at separate tables. Its' not like they were busy anyway. My sister also tried to talk to him again and one of his family members ( I assume) tried to give her $20 to shut up and go away.
I would not be writing such a negative review you if Fat Larry has said something like, "I'm sorry, but I can only allow one voucher per table. I'm sorry my employee told you wrong, but I hope you will come back another time." I would have been more understanding and MIGHT have visited again.If he doesn't want people using vouchers, then he shouldn't offer them.
The attitude and rudeness with which he spoke to me and my sister was absolutely unacceptable. I have never been spoken to like that before in my life and I will never give that man one penny more than what I had to pay him for dinner tonight and I hope those of you considering going won't either. I had read other reviews on some other websites, but I tried to go with an open mind to give it a chance...the biggest mistake of the year.
